Windows Recovery Console
If you encounter problems with your system startup such as, your system not starting at all or not starting properly, the Recovery Console provides a measure to recover and restore your system to a working condition. Microsoft recommends this option only after Safe mode and when other startup options do not seem to work. Recovery Console provides you tons of options like, the ability to format drives, enable and disable certain applications, as well as perform administrative tasks. The Recovery Console feature is available on the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM.
Windows XP provides System Restore feature to its users. System Restore operates by maintaining multiple restore points on your system so that in times of trouble, you would be able to revert back to the created restore point. You could either manually create these points or System Restore automatically creates these points on your system before any major changes like, installing new software or driver, during a restoration operation, etc., are performed on your system.
While restoring your Windows XP, it is recommended to restart your system in the Safe mode. Performing many of the restoration actions might lead to data loss. Thus, it is desirable to backup all your files and important data before performing the action. After restoring your Windows XP, you are required to supplement it with all the updates and service packs available for your edition. As the System Restore feature creates multiple restore points, it is desirable to have adequate memory space on your system, so as to save all the created points or else the earlier created points could get aged-out.
